Temporary Change in Services

The City of Nashua DPHCS is in a phased re-opening of services. We continue to operate virtually and select services are available in-person by appointment only. We recommend to continue contacting us via phone or email. If you need to make an in-person appointment, please call the appropriate department number listed below.

If you make an appointment for a service at our building, you will be asked to complete our screening protocol upon arrival. To ensure the health and safety of our staff and clients, if you have a fever or answer yes to any of our screening questions, you will be asked to arrange for a COVID-19 test, quarantine, and return at a later date. Our staff will be practicing social distancing, wearing face coverings, and practicing proper hand hygiene. Our visitors will be asked to do the same.
